Beautiful in Burlap

Published on NewsOK Published: April 15, 2013

Eco-friendly, rustic burlap is a fun fabric for DIY projects. Add some rustic flavor to your design scheme with these DIY projects.

No-sew burlap curtains: You don't even need a curtain rod to hang these no-sew burlap curtains; just a few nails or pegs. To make these rustic-looking curtains, you'll need to affix a dark strip of burlap to a large light-colored burlap panel with Stitch Witchery. Then add curtain clips, and hang from either pegs, nails, or a curtain rod. Tie back the curtain with a big strip of dark burlap, and be sure to tie it in a big bow.

No-sew burlap valances: Well this is really easy. Cut a burlap sack in half, and either fold it and hot glue a curtain rod pocket into it, or just clip on some curtain clips. Hang from a curtain rod and make all of your friends so jealous that they will go out and ambush their local barristas for coffee sacks.

Painted burlap pillow: This is a sewing project, but it is an easy sewing project. The results look similar to a very fancy burlap pillow from a very popular furnishings catalogue. Sew together two long, rectangular pieces of burlap. Stuff with batting. Embellish with stencils and acrylic paint, as well as ribbon.
